Alden’s Tan Suede Longwing is one of our favorite versions of their classic wingtip style. The tan suede is a perfect color to go with casual fabrics like denim and khaki, but not too rugged to be dressed up to smoother fabrics and more subdued colors.
Suede is a much more durable leather than its reputation proceeds. Put a little wear on these and they will look great with just about everything.

Alden’s longwing is the perfect template for a number of different leathers, many of which are suedes. Suede works especially well with the longwing style, not only because it adds casual style to a classic, ornate design, but because its texture compliments the broguing on a wingtip like no other leather.
We now have both the Navy Suede and Snuff Suede longwings in stock. The Navy exhibits beautiful contrast with its natural edge and brass eyelets. The Snuff Suede is all about the leather, rich, bright, and perfect with jeans.

Once again we draw from the well of Longwing Blucher’s and draw upon this all weather version. Made by Alden expressly for Leffot this LWB in Brown Alpine Grain is ideal for foul weather. In addition to the rugged yet supple leather uppers we have built this shoe on plantation crepe soles to keep moisture out and comfort in.
This is the first release of this shoe, a cousin of our black Alpine Grain LWB, that is a perennial favorite.

Edward Green’s Harrogate is a British take on the American longwing. Its subtle combination of suede and calfskin is simply astounding. The rich Dark Oak Antique calf plays wonderfully against the slightly darker Mocha suede, creating a bright, yet textured look. Its a shoe that will add elegance to just about any outfit, from casual to a suit.

Alden’s Longwing Blucher is a classic for a reason. It is one of the most versatile dress shoes you can find, floating through a wide range of occasions. It’s versatility allows for a swath of variations. This version comes in soft and supple brown chromexcel leather, flexible double waterlock soles, and agatine eyelets, a significantly more rugged and casual take on the classic.
One can choose to treat this shoe as either a casual or dress shoe. Use Montana Pitch Blend’s waxy leather dressing to protect it from the rain and keep the leather soft or use Saphir Renovateur and Wax Polish to dress them up and polish to a high gloss. Either way, they’ll look great for years.
